FUNCTIONS

init_cli_client

Takes PARAMHASH containing possible parameters distro, sitedir, and debug_mode. Initializes CLI client and returns a status object.

The distro string should use hyphens instead of double-colons, i.e. Foo-Bar instead of Foo::Bar.

normalize_filespec

Given a filename (path) which might be relative or absolute, return an absolute version. If the path was relative, it will be anchored to the home directory of the user we are running as.

init_ua

Initialize the LWP::UserAgent singleton object.

Return the cookie_jar associated with our user agent.

send_req

Send a request to the server, get the response, convert it from JSON, and return it to caller. Die on unexpected errors.
